FWIW, from the snapd side of things LZO support is no longer experimental and has been fully enabled for all snaps.

@adasiko @ijohnson Opened PR to remove experimental notice:

Thanks for pointing it out :smiley:


Snapcraft 4.5.1 is now on candidate, with fixes for:

  • locked pip to working version with python 3.5
  • improvements to python integration with the gnome-3-38 and gnome-3-34 extension
  • removed unnecessary experimental warning when using lzo

Changeset for 4.5 and it’s followup 4.5.1 which is now on the stable channel for snapcraft.
